BACKGROUND: For the first time in four years, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) has a quorum of commissioners. The agency is moving rapidly to prepare for the 2016 elections, update voluntary voting systems standards, reconstitute the standards and advisory boards, enhance the information clearing house function, and numerous other tasks to fulfill their mission as specified by the Help American Vote Act (HAVA). Establishing short-term goals, long-term strategies and prioritizing the EAC’s focus in the coming months, are critical operational goals for the agency. Identifying and vetting these priorities and associated policy decisions cannot be done without input from the constituencies served by the EAC. This round table will explore the election administration issues and challenges faced by many of the institutions and constituencies who share the EAC’s mission of improving election administration in the United States.
